This is the story of Leonard Lion, a little cub who is full of energy and very excited for the day ahead. He lives in Africa with his four friends Ethel Elephant, Betsy Buffalo, Lucy Leopard, and Ralphie Rhino. Together they are the Little Big Five. Every morning, soon after the sun rises, they meet at their favourite place, the watering hole. They play games and have fun before heading off into the savannah to explore.

Today the game is hide and seek, but before long they find themselves swept up in a dangerous adventure. Poachers and traps await them in the dark shadows. Will they survive? The young friends will have to look after each other if they are to get out alive. Leonard Lion will need to think of a plan to save them all. Will he remember his mother’s advice? Will he be especially brave? Join the Little Big Five in the first of their many adventures.

    I bought this book for my 7 and 8 Yr old who love a bedtime story and love animals... they just loved hearing about Leonard and his wee friends! It is a sweet tale of friendship and learning to be courageous... a lesson for all ages!! A lovely story with a wonderfully wholesome theme and bright fund illustration! My girls can't wait for the next in the series... and neither can I!

    Absolutely fantastic book! As a childminder it’s rare to find a book that interests children of all different ages … but all of the children love Leonard the Lion! Not only is it a good story…it has a lovely message behind it too. I loved it so much I’ve already bought extra copies as presents!

    I bought this wee book for my daughter and then had to go and buy it for each of my nieces as I just loved the story so much and the illustration was so exciting. A lovely read and can't wait for the next installment.

    My kids loved Leonard Lion is Brave! It arrived yesterday and we’ve read it at least 6 times. Michelle takes the theme of bravery, which is so complex, and communicates it very well. We can’t wait for the other books to come out!
